Some locations are doomed, as restaurant after restaurant tries and fails to make a go of it there. The space at Green Spring Station, I'm happy to say, turns out not to be one of those after all.
Of course, it's early days yet, but the new Tark's Grill seems to be making customers happy. The energy is certainly there. As we approached the entrance on a recent weeknight, the noise from the crowded bar was audible from across the courtyard. The restaurant's patio in the courtyard, by the way, now has a fireplace, which is lit even when it isn't warm enough to eat outdoors. Very nice.
